Support » Plugin: Resize images before upload » Image Resize Flash Error Now Appearing in iPad Browser

  • Resolved mrjarbenne


    In Internet Explorer 8, with the previous version of the plugin (0.6), we were seeing a “Flash needs to be updated to resize photos” despite that fact that we were running the latest version. We could dismiss the error and carry on previously. Since updating to 3.5 though, and updating the plugin to 0.9, dismissing that error kicks you out of the dashboard back onto the front of the blog.

    To add to this, we are also now seeing the error in Safari on iOS.

    Yes there are some issues that still need to be ironed out when using non HTML5 browsers and the new media management in 3.5.

    The problem with IE 8 should be fixed now with the recent version of the plugin I have recently uploaded.

    The iOS problem on the other hand is not fixed. It’s only in the recent version of iOS that file uploads have been enabled, before that you couldn’t even upload images to websites so it wasn’t a platform that this plugin was tested on.

    I’ve just tried to use the iPad to resize images but for some reason Apple aren’t resizing images in the same way that other browsers do (the resized image is out of proportion). I could make the plugin use the Flash uploader but that wouldn’t work on an Apple device as they don’t allow Flash. Maybe in the next version of iOS the resize might work a little better or the next version of plupload might fix the issue.

    Please let me know if you still have problems with the new version when using IE.

    I can confirm that version 0.9 rectified the IE8 issues (sad that some of my users are still using this. Thanks for fixing it: I would have completely understood if you just shot me a link to

    I’ll keep it live in my sandbox and experiment as iOS or WP updates.
